FWC Approved Sea Turtle Lighting

All exterior lighting for the entire project area including structural and landscape lighting must be reviewed and approved by FWC regardless of whether or not the area is seaward of the CCCL.


All exterior fixtures on the seaward and the shore perpendicular sides of the building (and on the landward side of the building if they are visible from the beach)  should be well shielded, full cut-off, downward directed type fixtures.  All exterior fixtures on the landward side of the building should be downward directed only.


Long wave length lights, e.g. those that produce light that measures greater than 560 nanometers on a spectroscope, are necessary for all construction visible from and adjacent to marine turtle nesting beaches. Bright white light, such as metal halide, halogen, fluorescent, mercury vapor and incandescent lamps will not be approved. Filters are unreliable and not allowed. Limited use of shorter wavelength lights may be approved in areas where direct and indirect light or glow could not possibly be visible from the beach upon approval by FWC.


  • Low Pressure Sodium (LPS) 18w, 35w
  • Red, orange or amberLED (true red, orange or amber diodes,  NOT filters)
  • True red neon
  • Other lighting sources that produce light of 560 nm or longer

**** FWC approved lighting may be found at


The plan shall reflect that tinted glass or film with a visible light transmittance value of forty-five (45) percent or less shall be applied to all windows and doors within line of sight of the beach.  This includes the seaward and shore-perpendicular sides of the structure.  This may be specified in the notes section on the Lighting Plan architectural drawing and should be included in the FDEP Permit Conditions.  


  • Private balcony lights
  • Up lights
  • Tree strap downlights
  • Decorative lighting, not necessary for human safety or security
  • Pond lights
  • Dune walkover lighting
  • Fountain lights on beach or shore perpendicular side of structure

Exit Ramp Assessment: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

The expansion of the southern runway at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has modified the roadway access connections between the airport and adjacent roadways. The closure and temporary detour of the southbound exit ramp to US Highway 1 and the proposed permanent changes in access from the airport to southbound US 1 have generated some concern within the communities located south of the airport. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) was asked to review the decision making process used by Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) to evaluate the elimination of direct access to southbound US 1 and to review other options available for southbound access to US Highway 1.

Cash for Trash

cash-for-trashAbout Cash for Trash

The purpose of Cash for Trash is to keep Hollywood clean, green, and litter-free by improving neighborhoods and bringing residents together to make a positive difference in their communities. It allows neighborhood or civic associations to earn money while beautifying the community. Associations may earn $6 for each approved, full bag of trash collected. The amount earned will be issued as a check made payable to the association.

To participate in the Cash for Trash program, the association must be a recognized neighborhood, homeowner’s or civic association located in the City of Hollywood with a valid tax identification number and be a registered vendor with the City. Although individuals, special groups, school clubs, non-profit organizations, or companies may not participate as cash recipients, they are more than welcome to volunteer or donate to the project.

Cash for Trash is a 3-hour project, which takes place on the second Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The association must identify a clean-up area and meeting location in the community. The clean-up area may include surrounding blocks near homes, businesses, schools, churches, athletic fields, parks, or open spaces. A meeting location should provide a restroom, free parking, and an area to collect trash bags.

There is no limit to the amount of litter that can be collected. A collected trash item must be small enough to fit into the provided trash bags. Bulk trash is not eligible to be counted and may not be collected. Other types of unacceptable trash include hazardous materials, tires, traffic accident debris, large brush, or shopping carts.

The association is responsible for recruiting volunteers and there is no limit to the number of volunteers an association may recruit from its members, neighbors, and residents to assist in the Cash for Trash program.

For each project, a Project Leader must be designated by the association and must be present on the day of the project. The Project will serve as the contact person for the project. The Project Leader does not have to be on the board of the association but must be at least 18 years old. Volunteers must be at least 8 years old. There must be at least one adult volunteer present for every 8 youth volunteers, ages 8 to 17. Large groups should be divided into small groups and Group Leaders assigned to the smaller groups. Group Leaders must be at least 18 years old.

To coordinate a project, the association must complete a Cash for Trash application for each project. The projects are scheduled on a first come, first scheduled basis. Each association may schedule no more than 3 projects per fiscal year (10/1 – 9/30) and will only be able to schedule one project at a time. An association may schedule an additional project once a project ends. If the association decides to cancel the project for any reason, they must contact the City immediately. The association may then re-schedule for the next available date. If there is bad weather on the day of the project, the project may be rescheduled to the earliest available date.
